scsibus0 should attach to umass0...are you running a custom kernel? you might

my sony:

umass0 at uhub0 port 1 configuration 1 interface 0
umass0: Sony Sony DSC, rev 1.00/3.28, addr 2
umass0: using RBC over CBI
scsibus1 at umass0: 2 targets, 1 luns per target
scsibus1: waiting 2 seconds for devices to settle...
sd4 at scsibus1 target 1 lun 0: <Sony, Sony DSC, 3.28> SCSI0 0/direct removable
